Just wondering if a reindexing is automatically performed when a custom field name is changed, i.e. "Commerce" to "Consumer" or is it manually started. What exactly does that entail? Is there downtime or any other concern?
Hi @JRodney Estrada ,
I believe that reindexing is a restricted function in a cloud, but for server , I would recommend that you do background re-index so that it does not make the system unavailable. Background index may impact the application's performance.
Renaming a field does not need re-indexing. The name of a field is actually just a label, all the index uses is the unique (and immutable) id of the custom field, it doesn't care what a field is called beyond looking the name up to get the id when someone asks for it via name.
You only need to re-index if you change the searcher.
